The Teen Eco-STEM Leadership Experience at the Farmington Hills Nature Center, which begins later this month, offers a great opportunity for youth ages 13 to 16 explore nature adventures, citizen science, and green engineering challenges.
Teens will spend a week investigating the forests and rivers at Heritage Park, applying critical thinking skills in solving real-world environmental problems.
The program meets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, August 17-21, almost entirely in the great outdoors.
COVID-19 safety measures include temperature checks and screening questions required at check-in. While outdoors, teens are not required to wear masks if six-foot distancing is maintained. If there is inclement weather, the program will move indoors where masks and six-foot distancing are required.
Staff will be wearing masks and enforcing physical distancing throughout the day.
